Ping and Extended Ping with Record

Unanswered Question
Apr 28th, 2009

Is a simple Ping processed diffrently then a Extended Ping with the Record flag set? Does the router process switch the ping packet in the extended ping?

I have this problem too.

If you set the record flag, all the routers along the path will have to process the ping to update the record field.

It's not be the case of a simple ping which need to be processed only by the final destination.
